Elon Musk: 99% of Startups Fail

Elon Musk - Face Your Fears

Mr limitless, Elon Musk reminds us that failure is part of the human experience, especially when starting a company.

Starting a company is like staring into the abyss and eating glass. There's some truth to that. The staring into the abyss part is that you're gonna be constantly facing the extermination of the company, because most startups fail. 99% of startups fail. So that's the staring into the abyss part. You're constantly saying, "If I don't get this right, the company will die," which can be quite stressful. And then the eating glass part is, you've gotta work on the problems that the company needs you to work on, not the problems you want to work on. So you end up working on problems that you really wish you weren't working on, so that's the eating glass part.


On the big picture, you know where you're generally heading for, and the actual path is gonna be some sort of zig-zaggy thing in that direction. Try not to deviate too far from the path that you want to be on, but you're gonna have to do that to some degree. You'll hear something, "Well, I feel fear about this, and therefore I shouldn't do it." It's normal to feel fear. There'd have to be something mentally wrong if you didn't feel fear. I feel it quite strongly. But there are just times when something is important enough, you believe in it enough, that you do it in spite of the fear.
